Beautiful (but very cold!!) day today getting going on the cedar shingles. These western red shakes have been dipped in lifetime wood treatment, that not only protects the wood, but helps age them quicker to the beautiful weathered silver colour! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #lifetime #lifetimewoodtreatment #cedarshakes #cedarshingles #cedar #shingalilies #siding #moulding #diamondkote
Last piece of diamond kote composite siding installed on the whole building!! On to the cedar next week, and the envelope of this wonderful building will be complete!! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #layherscaffolding #cedar #cedarshingles #siding #moulding #diamondkote #diamondkotesiding
Even the -14C winds won’t slow us down with this siding! All the mouldings and trim done on the belly band, lower windows framed, and cedar breather installed ready for the shakes next week. We’ll be straight going with the siding up top today, and ready for scaffolding tear down at the end of the day! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #layherscaffolding #cedar #cedarshingles #siding #moulding #diamondkote
Tomorrow is a big day! We begin siding the last side of this wonderful building! It’s been a long time coming, but with the last windows installed last week, we’re now ready to complete the envelope of this labour of love! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #halifaxnoise #layherscaffolding #cedar #cedarshingles #siding #moulding #longtimecoming
We got the rail cap all machines up with a 6 degree watershed angle on top, and all mitres cut and glued up. We used polyurethane glue for extra strength where this will be exposed to every weather imaginable. #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #cedar #cedarshingles #festool #tracksaw #midi #bessey #kbody #clamps #glueup #polyurathane
Got the cedar boards all dressed up, biscuited, glued and clamped today. One can never have to many clamps! We’ll be machining a low angle slope on the top of this wall cap before installation to create a watershed to prevent water sitting on top of the wall. #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #cedar #cedarshingles #festool #tracksaw #midi #bessey #kbody #clamps #glueup #polyurathane
Straight edging these 16’ cedar boards today, ready for glue up! This will eventually be a wall cap for a balcony. We’re using cedar to match the cedar shingles on the exterior of the building, and it should hold up to the elements just fine! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #cedar #cedarshingles #festool #tracksaw
New carpet tile, a good lick of paint, and a little more work to get this hallway wrapped up, but what a transformation eh?! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #hallway #renovation #regeneration #wainscoting
All framework’s done, filled and sanded. Cap rail and mouldings have been installed, so time for some primer! There will be new carpet heading all the way down the hallway, and then we’ll be adding baseboard to finish off this wainscoting! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #hallway #renovation #regeneration #wainscoting
Frames are all on, seams filled, and solid pine cap getting installed. This will be a slightly more hard wearing material that will stand up to much better than the mdf.  #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #hallway #renovation #regeneration #wainscoting
The walls in this hallway were in real rough shape, but instead of skimming the whole wall, we decided to add a wainscoting to not only cover damage, but to add a bit of character and a feature to this long bear hallway. We decided to use 1/4” mdf to cover over a whole load of old patches, holes, electrical, baseboard and runner board removal etc... This also gave us an opportunity to straighten up certain sections of these old walls. Next task will be creating all the frames for the wainscoting! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #hallway #renovation #regeneration #wainscoting
Next up is the common areas of paddlers cove! We’ll be transforming this long dark hallway in to a bright inviting walkway! Stay tuned! #paddlerscove #lakebanook #dartmouth #novascotia #kore #koreconstruction #hallway #renovation #regeneration
What a beautiful spot for a boardroom meeting! With great views of lake banook, it may be a little easy to get distracted while working though! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #barnboard #boardroom #meetings #meetingroom
With the brickwork all installed, we cleaned them all down and applied a low lustre clear protective coating. We are all so pleased with how well this brickwork has turned out, and love the rich texture it gives the room! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
Getting the brick to follow the contour of the windows was a challenge, but with a couple simple jigs, we managed to achieve a consistent and accurate radius! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
Days upon days, and nights upon nights of brickwork was put in to this fitup. A huge amount of hours were poured in to this brick, but the final product was what we all kept in mind, and with every course of bricks, we could see it coming together! This is one job we’re incredibly proud of! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
And so the brick veneer “tile” setting begins! We used a regular thinset tile mortar to set the veneers, and used 1/2” rips of wood as our spacers to get a consistent gap. The @dewalt_ca laser levels helped keep our tiles vertically aligned all the way up the walls! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
We needed brick veneer, but to fit our timeline and budget we had to cut our own.... lots and lots of bricks, transformed in to even more veneers! The boys were relentless with the wet saw, and managed to get 4 half inch cuts per brick! We were then able to set these like tile, which saved in space, weight and money! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #industrial #oldbuilding #inspiration
